Description of problem:
Both firefox and thunderbird start with the following alert -
Could not initialize the browser's security component. <snip>
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install FC5T2 (everything)
Actual Results: Firefox and Thunderbird give startup alert message saying there's no security component. As a result you can't access any https site.
Expected Results: SSL connections should work.
Update ... this only occurs when selinux is set to enforcing. When set to
permissive both firefox and thunderbird handle SSL connections just fine.
These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks
